Odell Beckham Jr. is leaving the New York area for Cleveland and one reporter for the NFL Network, who covers the Giants and the Jets, told an emotional story about the former LSU Tiger.

Kimberly Jones suffered a serious medical issue while at the Giants training facility late last year and one of the first players to welcome her back and wish her well was Odell Beckham Jr.

She said that Beckham sent her an encouraging message and wished her well. Perhaps he did it because she once offered up advice to the young superstar while he was injured.

Look, OBJ gets a bad rap at times in the media because of his sideline antics, but I too don't think that is who he is. While at LSU he was never an issue. He just has the passion to win and at times that desire to be great seems to get the better of him.

Here's her goodbye to a friend as he takes his talents from New York to Cleveland.
